Plot Summary (from Goodreads):
Sixteen-year-old Mallory loves her boyfriend, Jeremy. Or at least likes him more than she's ever liked any other boy. She's sure he feels the same way. Until she happens upon his online Authentic Life game and discovers he's cheating on her Mallory's life is falling apart and technology is the cause. And then she finds a list, written by her grandma when she was Mallory's age. All her grandma had to worry about was sewing dresses and planning dinner parties. Things were so much simpler in the 1960s. And there's nothing on the list that Mallory couldn't do herself. Maybe it's time for Mallory to go vintage and find the answers to her modern-day problems.

So I've decided to do something a bit different for this review. I'm taking inspiration from Mallory and doing it vintage style, with lists! (If you can't see the images below, scroll down for the text version - which is slightly less vintage.)


  1. What a fun review! How very cute to write out your own lists as a review. Very fitting with the story and it feels refreshing to see a different type of review! :)

    1. Thank you! <3 it was so fun to do something different :D I'll have to try and think outside the box more often, but this just felt like the only way to write it! Thanks so much for the lovely comment Clover :) :)

  2. *squee* This sounds incredibly cute and what an awesomely quirky way to do a review!
    I'm totally into the vintage thing (as you can probably guess from my blog) so definitely adding this to my TBR pile, utterly up my street.
    Off to find more vintagette books now :)

    1. Thank you! It was so cute, especially the romance side <3 I really hope you enjoy it when you get round to it! And if you find any more vintage books you'll have to let me know :D thanks so much for the lovely comment!

  3. I think you forgot to add the text version :) I liked what I could understand though :)

    1. I hid it under a button so sorry if that's not working! :(
